Cambridge vs. Oxford: The Alumni Game

1st April 2017, Toronto, CA -- The 9th Annual Alumni game of Oxford v. Cambridge Ice Hockey Blues was a bit of a disappointment. After eight years of close games, with even results, this year Cambridge lost in a decisive manner. Although the score was lop-sided, the game was fairly evenly matched with both sides getting a good number of chances. Cambridge, unfortunately, could only get the puck past the Oxford goalie once during the game and, when under pressure in their own end, Cambridge simply did not do enough to clear the puck away from their own goalie. 

Despite being outscored, the Cambridge players showed their class by continuing to battle to the final buzzer, and then later when they hosted the after-game event at the Park Hyatt organized by Cambridge in America. Winning a game lasts for only a season, as the Cambridge Blue Alumni will be back next year better than ever. Style, however, lasts forever.
